or a government that allow your opinions but makes it harder to run the country because they have different opinions. But some people feel that democracy have more control over what goes and and they make all the decisions . People still feel that dictatorship is better and they can use to it to their advantage. This country should have a democracy government because it makes it gives us a chance to express our concerns and opinions about what the government is doing . In the text it states that “ The current leaders in a perfect democracy would have zero influence, whereas an absolute dictatorship would place total control over the decision in one person’s hands”(Acemoglu,2012) .
With Americans embracing the American Dream, bureaucratic agencies should implement laws and make rules that would make this American Dream realistic. For this reason, this paper aims to elaborate how bureaucracies kill the American Dream. Bureaucracy is a term which is very unpopular to citizens. However, these bureaucrats exercise power which has been subject to several debates because they are less visible and they are only appointed by the president with the approval of the Senate (Colemn et al.) Policy decisions made by the president, the Congress, or the Supreme Court are most likely to be implemented by bureaucrats.
(Brand, n.d.)” meaning the ruling of a few. Sparta, with its two kings and the power being passed down through the descendants, leaves little room for change politically. Athens, will always be the starting point of the democratic society, because of this, you will forever see these two stand in stark contrast of each other. Even though, Athens was a “Athens was a class based society" (Brand, n.d.) The Aristocrats, masses and generals were all part of the government, according to
Let me seize this moment to discussion the literature on authoritarianism, fascism, and dictatorship through the theoretical approach of behaviorism. First of all, let me inform you that the authoritarianism, Fascism, and dictatorship are all form of governments that lack the tendency to have electoral competition and widespread of voting participation. Though they are widely considered nondemocratic interim of their values and tempt to share a negative characteristic, but they little in common. Authoritarianism: has been widely considered by many scholars as a nondemocratic traditional form of government because they seem to have a single party system, usually lead by one man and a powerful secret police or small group of people, no party or weak party system, no mass mobilization but mentality. Fascism: This form of government has been also classified as nondemocratic by many political scientist and scholars because it appears to be a radical approach form of authoritarian nationalism movement that has been linked with corporatism.
In the Second Treatise of Government, John Locke argues that citizens have the right of revolution when the government acts against their interests. To Locke, revolution was an obligation, however, many other philosophers do not view it that way. Edmund Burke, for example, believed that gradual change was better than all out revolution. Other philosophers such as Thomas Hobbes believed that the people need to obey their government due to a ‘social contract’ between them and the state. This essay will argue that a right to revolution needs to be granted to citizens in the case of a tyrannical government because it is the government’s duty to serve its citizens, and if it fails to do so, the people need to replace it with an alternate form of governance.
Vaclav Havel wrote his essay “The power of the powerless” as a description and critique of the totalitarian communist government and its system. He states that Communism is different to the other types of dictatorship as it is alike a “secularized religion” rather than the usual dictatorship, which do not have any social of historical background and come to power just by the military power. He also described how the individuals are responsible for getting under the autocratic regime due to their agreement to live in a society of consumers, where the supplier is the government, expecting everyone to go with the strict order of life. In case those individuals decide to participate in that and “live within a lie”, they are bounded with the communism. And this “living within a lie” is the initial rule of the Communist system’s power.
1. What is essential to the “preservation of liberty?” How should this “be so constituted?” The powers of government must be separated in order to preserve liberty To do this, the members of one branch should have little to no power over the selection of members of another branch This separation of powers ensures that no one branch gains control of the other two branches The people should have control and elect who fills most offices 2. Explain the following: “A dependence upon the people is, no doubt, the primary control on the government; but experience has taught mankind the necessity of auxiliary precautions.” Man has the tendency to put his ambitions first and be greedy The government is made up of man; therefore there must be Constitutional safeguards restricting the actions of powerful government
GETTING CERTAIN INTENSITY WITH AUTOCRACY In the simplest form, autocratic leadership described as gathering all power and privilage in one hand. Rudin states that kind of leaders was rushing to give achievement and penalties or having no feelings for others ' thoughts at all. (1964) In history, there are many autocratic leaders that left a good footprint on historical road and most of them showed successful leadership, had control over people mostly. Thus, autocratic leadership is the best way of having control over a group. Some may argue that autocratic leadership leads to dictatorship and dictatorship leads to resentment among people.
The idea of an organized society with set rules is believed to be a result of just nature. These societies were organized in governments in which most of the population agrees to be under certain conditions. The success or failure of these societies is determined by the conformity of its population. A moral or not government system, conformity is not human nature and as a result after a period of time the majority of the population would crave a real change. When a population desires a governmental or social adjustment it manifests as rebellion.
Both of these two theories separate the thinkers from the rest of the citizens, and both of these theories seemingly create an aristocracy, since even though Arendt defends democracy, it seems that those without the capacity or will to deliberate are the class with less rights. Of course Plato’s and Arendt’s “ideal state” are very different, especially because Plato is not a defender of democracy, and especially because Arendt herself never truly wrote a systematic work about democracy, however certain similarities are evident. If it is true that Arendt’s form of democracy suggests a ruling class of the citizens who deliberate over those that refuse to, or do not want to, it is relevant to question whether it is still a democracy or
